I'm wary of pro athletes as a whole, and especially ones that lie to the face of their teams.

Oh well. Once hockey gets going, we'll see how HFOil's little hype job lives up.
We don't know what his motives were, maybe he only wanted to play for us and didn't want his rights traded to another club? If so how do you propose he accomplish this without the Oilers having to pay a hefty price or to guarantee that he got here? Either way he wanted to come here and we own his rights for a number of years. Does it suck for the Ducks? Hell yeah, does it mean that he's a POS? I don't think so but I'm sure that a lot of people do. Either way I am thrilled that the kid chose us and will be part of our core going forward.
